    ...., I dont know where to begin. how about here.... THANKS!

    really, thanks guys. I am totally blown away by how this has turned out. I really like all of your work with these old/new bikes. This is really rewarding hobby to get into(even though its more than a hobby.) CONGRATS TO EVERYONE.

    yeah, the only thing about that is since I trashed the old fenders, I would have to find a way to support the stand when I am riding. BUT I think I am going to use the ears to attach a music trailer that matches the bike. That should be fun.

    thanks man! yeah I need to do something a little more permanent on the truss rods... I definitely will be keeping this bike around. I need to just invest in a good welder, I can't even imagine the stuff I could start doing with that.

    Does anybody know about how much it would be to get some of these parts chrome plated (nothing more that the crank and some of the bolts and bearing cups)



    Anyways, thanks again. I still look up to you guys, I look forward to learning new tricks and trades. Now everybody get out and go cruising! the warm weather is almost here!

    Congratulations!!

    Chroming can be pretty expensive. I believe most places charge a minimum so make sure you go in with at least enough parts to cover the minimum.
    I once just needed a single sprocket chromed but the minimum was $50. I took along another sprocket and crank and got them all done for the $50.
